Ohio High School Teacher Julie Hautzenroeder Accused of Sex with Students
Julie Hautzenroeder, 36, of Loveland, was indicted on Friday by a Hamilton County grand jury on two counts of sexual battery. Hautzenroeder, who taught at Colerain High School in Colerain Township, allegedly has sex with a 16-year-old male student and another male student whose age was not immediately released, WCPO reports.
Officials with the Northwest Local School District placed Hautzenroeder on administrative leave and notified police after learning of the allegation of illicit conduct. The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department then launched an investigation.
According to court documents, the illicit sex occurred at Hautzenroeder’s home between April 26 and May 15.
Northwest Local School District released the following statement on Friday:
On Friday, May 17, 2013, Julie Hautzenroeder was placed on administrative leave pending an investigation into criminal activity. The matter was turned over to the local law enforcement authorities for investigation.
In light of the recent indictment, the Board of Education and administration will begin the next steps in the due process procedures. There will be no further comment at this time.
Hautzenroeder’s arrest comes just days after Shannon Fox, an art teacher at Northeastern High School in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, was arrested and charged with having an illicit sexual relationship with a student.
